Senior counsel Daniel Cohen recently published the seventh edition of his book, “The New York Motion Practice Handbook & Forms” which identifies the statutory provisions governing various types of motions and the key decisions that interpret them. The book covers many topics that do not generally receive discussion in a civil practice law treatise such as the main substantive provisions of the Statute of Frauds, common law tolling doctrines, and grounds to disqualify counsel, or for recusal of a judge. Cohen not only describes the mechanics of making the motions, but the legal grounds underpinning them as well. The 2020 edition contains a new chapter on special proceedings as well as more than 80 forms and sample documents.
